Marine Dr, Colombo 00600, Sri Lanka
My boyfriend, Aruna, and I were halfway through our two month stay in Sri Lanka when he came down with a vicious stomach bacteria and fever. We left the beaches of the south coast and returned to Colombo, the hot-sticky capitol city, to rest at...

Bentota, Sri Lanka
This safari took us on a tour through the Bentota lagoon: a mix of scattered small islands and maze-like mangrove swamps. The boatmen meander through the islets and beneath huge roots where they guide you through a myriad of wildlife that includes...

Kosgoda, Sri Lanka

Talpe, Sri Lanka
Sometimes a single image pulls me out the door. I came across an old Steve McCurry photo of the Weligama stick fishermen while cleaning out boxes of magazines a few years back. McCurry depicted the fishermen as seafaring mavericks with one of the...

Polhena Beach, Sri Lanka
Stilt fishing is a tradition on the southern coast of Sri Lanka. The fishermen sit on a cross bar called a petta that tied to a vertical pole driven into the coral reef. The men fish with either rods or just string. The catch is either a variety...

Panama, Sri Lanka
The east coast of Sri Lanka boasts amazing scenery as well as some fabulous surf. This area was frequently visited by wild elephants and we'd often surf under the watchful eyes of the monkeys. Periods of no surf meant hanging out on the giant...

Sri Lanka is a beautiful country with such a diverse selection of environments within hours of one another. Tea plantations, beaches, cities, mountains and flatlands, everything is beautiful and seemingly untouched.

My driver spies the animals — jackals, boar, crocodiles and peacocks so far — much more quickly than I. Speaking of elephants… We see one, not far off in the distance. He’s gorgeous, and surprisingly graceful in his movements. Yes! This safari...

Station Rd, Haputale, Sri Lanka
Seeing Sri Lanka by train (first-class from Haputale to Hatton: $14) is surprisingly luxurious! My car comes with tilting seats, (on-and-off-again) wi-fi (not unlike AT&T service in Chicago!), windows that open, ceiling fans and a flat-screen tv....

Sri Pada / Adam's Peak, Sri Lanka
Adam’s Peak is a mountain in Central Sri Lanka that is a holy site to Buddhists, Christians, Hindus and Muslims: the large footprint at the top was left by either Adam, Lord Shiva or Buddha, depending upon who you ask. Climbing the mountain is an...

Hatton, Sri Lanka
Train travel in Sri Lanka is like stepping back in time - old locomotives, old tracks, and slow service. But it's the best way to really see the middle of the country. Some stations like this one in Hatton are really busy - and you have to be...

Nanuoya, Sri Lanka
A visit to Sri Lanka's Hill Country is not complete without experiencing at least part of the train journey from Kandy to Badulla. The scenery changes as the train rounds each corner and with time of day, unfolding panoramas of tea plantations...

What you can get from here is 100% percent pure SriLankan tea tasting. A pot of tea for you and your friends plus a piece of chocolate cake for everyone with very low prices will give you a surprise. While shopping in the tea shop, they will give...

The Royal Botanical Gardens lies in the outskirts of Kandy. I walk for an hour, covering much of the grounds. The highlight of the park, in a morbidly fascinating way, is hundreds (thousands?) of fruit bats congregating above our heads. Word to...

Freedom Lodge is near the lake, but just up the street and away from the loud road. Beware: at the train station, there are many tuk-tuks willing to take you to a hotel or guesthouse that is (too) close to the action downtown, but Freedom Lodge is...
